Eastern Brazilwood (Sappanwood) EXTRACT 30g (1.1 oz)


The extract of eastern brazilwood comes from the heartwood of trees of the genus Caesalpinia. Originally an old-world dye, the country of Brazil was named after this dyeplant. Historically harvested (then overharvested) from the species Cæsalpinia echinata found on Brazilian coastlines. Sappanwood Cæsalpinia sappan is found throughout east Asia and is sometimes known as Eastern Brazilwood. Our brazilwood comes from Sappanwood. This wood is high in tannin and a colourant known as Brazilian. It will produce lovely warm reds when dyed at a 2-5% WOF and deep crimson reds when dyed at 5-10%.
